The Border Raid

600km cycling event starting from Kirkley Cafe, Ponteland. Controls at Dumfries, Newton Stewart, Girvan, Darlrymple, Lockerbie Lorry Park, Melrose, Alnwick and Answer on Ulgham Sign.

A scenic, but reasonably flat 611 Km route. Starts along the military road beside Hadrians wall then follows quiet roads through Galloway and the Scottish borders.

Well graded climbs, a visit to sea-side Girvan, with views of Ailsa Craig gives this ride an objective. Accomodation 24 and bag drop @390K Lockerbie Lorry park control. The final 100Km after Kelso has some climbs, . Ideal Pre PBP shakedown or just a nice 600. Camping/Nearby hotels at start.
